"Did It Again" as written by Pharrell L Williams and Shakira Isabel Ripoll....
First floor (uh-oh)
Room sixteen (uh-oh)
Smells like danger (let's go)
Even better (let's go)
Set your goals (uh-oh)
Bless our souls (uh-oh)
I'm in trouble (yes, I know)
But it feels like heaven (hey!)

You were like one of those guys
The kind with a wandering eye (hey!)
But I said, hey what the hell?
For once in my life I'll take a ride on the wild side

You were so full of yourself
But damn, were you cute, as well (hey!)
You liked my legs, I liked your moves
Anyone could tell that it's hard to deny that

I did it again now
I've got it all wrong
But it felt so right
I can't believe it
No more mistakes that
Went on for too long
Wish there was a way
I could delete 'em

Eh, eh, eh, eh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Eh, eh, eh, eh, uh, uh, uh, uh

Second night (uh-oh)
In a row (uh-oh)
Back in trouble (let's go)
I don't get it (let's go)

Gotta keep it down (uh-oh)
It'll all be cool (uh-oh)
If we ignore 'em (yes, I know)
Getting better (hey!)

When it comes to men, it's known
That I end up choosing wrong (hey!)
'Cause I always trip and fall
On the same old rock and repeat and go back

How blind a girl can be (ooh)
To miss you hide your ring (hey!)
But I bought everything
I'm so naive, and I'd like you to know that

I did it again now
I've got it all wrong
But it felt so right
I can't believe it
No more mistakes that
Went on for too long
Wish there was a way
I could delete 'em

Eh, eh, eh, eh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Eh, eh, eh, eh, uh, uh, uh, uh

It might seem to you that I am in a place
Where I'm losing the direction of my life
But I'm sure that this is nothing but a phase
Right back at ya, 'cause I'll survive

It might seem to you that I am in a place
Where I'm losing the direction of my life
But I'm sure that this is nothing but a phase
Right back at ya, 'cause I'll survive

I did it again now
I've got it all wrong
But it felt so right
I can't believe it
All the mistakes that
Went on for too long
Wish there was a way
I could delete 'em

I did it again now
I've got it all wrong

Eh, eh, eh, eh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Eh, eh, eh, eh, uh, uh, uh, uh

    General Commenti am in looooove with shakira but i didnt really understand her music video for this song. i thought the dancing was awesome but just the scene where shes in the sauna with a bunch of ladies confused me. do you think maybe shes implying that she's messed up so many times with men that she's gonna go after women? or maybe they're just her friends. either way, still love her

    My InterpretationThis song is easy to understand, since it's narrated by the woman Shakira plays the part of. Basically the woman meets a man who has a 'wandering eye', i.e. he's kind of a player, and decides that what the hell, for once she'll take a risk and try it on with him since she always goes for the men that look nice but they always end up breaking her heart (the bit about the same old rock and repeating), except this time it just happens again. She gets into another bad relationship with a man who's married and just in it for the sex, and it comes crashing down on her. She's done it again -- she's failed another relationship. She tries imagining a life with this man but it's all just fantasy.

    My InterpretationTo me this song is about casual sex; this woman is meeting up with this guy at a hotel for obvious reasons. Except, she regrets it. She really thought this guy was something special. He's very sexy and obviously seductive & of course she fell for it. Turns out, she made a mistake because he really is JUST in it for the sex. So, perhaps she feels kind of lame for falling so easily for such a seductive guy.

    OR

    could be based on just another failed relationship, but the song doesn't imply this so much.

    What do you guys think?

    Love the song btw.

    General CommentLike another user said, I think this is definitely about causal sex. Her constant state of finding herself vulnerable to men because they've been seductive and luring and having sex with them all too soon. I think her guard falls too soon and she becomes enthralled by these men very quick and potential seeing a future with them so therefore she gives herself freely(a.k.a has sex). Moreover, what strikes me about the song lyrics is the lines:

    "How blind a girl can be
    To miss you hide your ring
    Thought about everything
    I'm so naive imagining and all that"

    I think a deeper meaning on the song talks about a woman having an affair with a married man multiple times. Whether it be the same person or another married lover, she is the other woman and she is constantly falling for these men who she has no business with and that makes the experience regretful and remorseful. Above all else the most heart-wrenching part about the song is the fact she dreams and fantasies a life with that person which won't happen....building her thoughts around marriage, love, relationship which is just merely dreaming. :(

    My InterpretationTHE CORRECT LYRICS ARE:

    "You were like one of those guys
    The kind with a wandering eye
    But I said, "hey what the hell, once in my life I'll take a ride on the wild side"
    You were so full of yourself
    But damn, were you cute, as well
    You liked my legs, I liked your moves
    Anyone could tell that it's hard to deny that"

    "Second night in a row
    Back in trouble
    I don't get it
    Gotta keep it down
    Because the Lobby called
    We ignore 'em (yes, I know)
    its getting better"

    My Interpretationthis song is talking about her and this guy who seem to both have this deepassionfor eachother " felt so right I cant believe it" it is most defenitley with a married man it seems as though she wants to stop but cant bring herself to and no matter what she says or does she falls back in the players arms.
